Fire has beaten Wardens 12-7 in a pulsating match of the first men’s cup semifinal of the Fiji McDonald’s Coral Coast 7s tournament.

The game went into extra time as both teams were tied 7 all after regulation time.

It was also a controversial match that saw both teams playing 6 against 6 during the majority of the game.

This was because both teams received a few yellow cards and even red cards.

After the first half of extra time, both teams still couldn’t break the deadlock as fatigue played a huge role with players not able to find the key passes.

They will meet either Army or Police in the final at 6.10pm.
